As you've seen, people have a wide variety of experiences to tell you about. Specifics about number of rounds and length of judging sessions vary depending on the tournament. In Virginia/DC you'll see: - at least one practice round of the Robot Game - at least three competition rounds of the Robot Game - three judging sessions (in my experience, these are usually 10 minutes each) - interaction with other teams - ceremonies and recognition - lots of fun! I am confident that you won't feel like there was too little to do to make it worthwhile! I am planning to send my "What to expect at your tournament" message in a day or two, which has some additional information.
